Our group has previously demonstrated that magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) embedded in microrobots can be used for propulsion and tracking in the human vascular network while being guided by an MRI platform. Here, we show that the same magnetic nanoparticles can also be exploited to perform various functions including but not limited to hyperthermic drug(More)
A new type of microrobots for medical interventions in the vascular network is presented. In its simplest form, each microscale robots consists of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) embedded in a thermo-sensitive hydrogel, also known as PNIPA. The nanoparticles are not only used for propulsion/steering, and MRI-based tracking inside the body due to local magnetic(More)
